heard it again today from the russian defense minister. he maintained that no, there are no russian soldiers occupying crimea as it stands. they maintain this position that they say it is local self-defense teams, local militias, and we only know on the ground what we see and what our own cfn teams have seen. there's some local militias but undoubtedly russian soldiers. not wearing the insignia but heavily armed, driving armored vehicles, some of those vehicles have russian registration plates. very difficult to see how negotiations can proceed when the russian position is just that they have not begun any occupation of ukrainian territory. >> phil black in moscow. as we mentioned at the top of the hour, russia is due to take part in nato's discussion of the cries in ukraine. john kerry is due to meet with his russian counterpart. kerry lamented russian's absence ever his counterparts from great britain and ukraine. >> we have our friends from ukraine and great britain, partners in the budapest agreement of 1994. we're missing one member, hopefully meet this afternoon with that indi

[laughter] we can't shrink the army. it's a process only tested on our kids. [laughter] and then after that ourselves. [ laughter ] ising this this goss to be a -- is this going to be a trilogy? what are we cut something in. >> after iraq and afghanistan we're no longer sizing the military to conduct long stability operations. there's 525,000 active duty soldiers. we've decided to further reduce the active duty army strength to a range of 440,000 to 450 soldiers. >> jon: 450 that's not enough. i really don't -- 450,000. that's -- [laughter] that actually should be fine.

from the head of defense committee who said that the defense committee looked into it, and they unanimously approve the action. there was the head of the foreign affairs committee also saying that they had looked into it, and they were unanimously approving what the president was asking for. we have the deputy speaker of the upper chamber. they were saying there were militants from maidan who were trained in poland and lithuania, and they also called for the russian ambassador from the u.s. to be recalled. they said that yanukovych was still the legitimate head of the ukraine. so the message is absolutely the same from everyone who is speaking at the moment. the vote has not happened yet. we don't know quite how it's going to take, so we will be watching. >> errorrory, it does sound like steps are being taken for some sort of intervention. does it mean that troops will be going into crimea? >> reporter: well, we don't know exactly what it means. the proposal is quite vague. it didn't even specify crimea. it said that military involvement could take place in ukraine. so
chain of command -- under department of defense policy nobody below '06 makes the decision whether or not to go forward with a prosecution sbchlt those people you just mentioned all are below the 06 level. in other words, when you say your commander, you're not talking about a navy captain or a colonel or above. is that correct? >> yes, senator, that's correct. excuse me. at that time that i served, it was the commander's ability to lessen the charge. so an 06 never -- it never came across their desk. >> okay. now that's an issue we have to be sure that the facts get to the 06 level because they're the people making the decision. but i think it's important to inform our discussion that when people talk about taking the decision out of the chain of command, you're not taking it away from sergeants and majors. you're taking it away from colonels and naval captains. that's a higher level. let me change this subject for a moment. you've talked eloquently about the deficiencies of the treatment system. would one solution be to allow military personnel to use their benefits in the civili
they are relenting. the troop buildup continues. the ukrainian coastal defense division is still pinned in. on the east coast of crimea, another military base is now encircled. and now border guards report seeing a massive buildup of military hardware on the russian side of the border. crimea is lost. kiev knows it. but how far did president putin's ambitions stretched. with one mighty turn to eastern ukraine. and is there anything to stop him? christian frazier, bbc news, sevastopol. >> big questions certainly. now to kiev. david stern is there for us. david, the prime minister of ukraine and the british foreign secretary have been speaking. what is their take at the moment? >> reporter: well, yes. as the crisis continues in crimea, the tension and worry and anger, among the ukrainian officials, is rising here. as you say. mr. william hague and the prime minister have been meeting. they have held a news conference. mr. hague said there will be consequences and costs to the russian actions. he promised a strong diplomatic and economic reaction, a response. but he said there was no military

"america
was called the western defense zone. so they were we moved -- removed, they were forced to leave, and they were put in camps surrounded by barbed wire, and they were not charged with anything in particular. west coast non-japanese-americans, the population in general, most poll constitutions, most newspapers strongly supported the removal of japanese-americans. it was a very popular policy locally. the civil rights organizations which were largely based back east didn't pay much attention to it. in all of the major jewish newspapers on the west coast, they were weeklies, and they had editorials talking about how the rights of all are to be protected, and we should fight prejudice in all of it forms and so on and so forth without ever saying the word "japanese" specifically, so it was almost as if they wanted to say something but were nervous about actually doing so. so there was, i call it a kind of awkward silence or an uncomfortable silence around this issue that i started to investigate more. >> this weekend booktv and american history tv look behind the history and literary l
